Production began this week in Connecticut on the new screenplay by husband and wife writers Dave Eggers (What is the What) and Vendela Vida (Let the Northern Lights Erase Your Name). The untitled project, about an expectant couple traveling around the country looking for a place to raise a family, is being directed by Sam Mendes (American Beauty).
If that's not enticing enough, the couple is played by John Krasinski of The Office (shirtless here as perfect guy Jim) and Maya Rudolph of SNL. The supporting cast is pretty stellar, too: Toni Collette, Jeff Daniels, Catherine O'Hara, a bunch of other people I don't really care about and Allison Janney, whom I will love forever for being C.J. Cregg on The West Wing and suffering through that debilitating woot canal.
